Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Light Up in Green

Hello again!

I'm back with another card today!  I made this card for a 3 different challenges which is unusual for me!  I decided to use one of the brand new March Release stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs called The Light of My Life.

The first challenge is for Split Coast Stampers SC374 Sketch Challenge, again.  The second is for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #18 to use doilies (I have a doily from a RAK, but it was too big for this).  The third challenge is for Really Reasonable Ribbon RRR43 to do monochromatic green.

The sentiment is stamped on the solar white paper, then die cut with the label die from the Parisian Accents set, and sponged while in the die.  I then die cut another label from the white and glued the 2 labels together to look like a motiff.  I noticed this looked good together a few weeks ago when I was doing the Spellbinders competition, and finally got around to doing it...although I'm sure it's already been done before by someone else.  :-)

The ingredients used:

Stamps: The Light of My Life (Our Daily Bread Designs - March Release)
Paper: Cardstock Stack (DCWV - green), The Preppy Princess Stack (DCWV), Solar White (Neenah), White (Georgia Pacific - inside card)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine), Green with Envy (Powder Puffs)
Accessories: Doilies (Wilton), Parisian Accents, Standard Circles Large #4 (Spellbinders), Fanciful Flourish (Cheery Lynn Designs), Doily Lace Edge Punch (Martha Stewart - inside card), ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon), adhesive pearls (Recollections & Want 2 Scrap), resin rose (Recollections), ribbon flowers (Michaels), Copic Sketch Marker YG63 Pea Green (colored the pearls in the middle of the flower), sponge

That's it for now.  Hope you are having a blessed weekend!
